A fully automatic, high-speed splicing machine for optical fiber ribbons has been developed to construct high-count optical cable lines in subscriber loops. Design procedure and detail performance of this machine is discussed in this paper. The developed machine achieves an average splice loss of less than 0.1 dB and a splicing time of about 2 min. for multi-mode five-fiber ribbons.
